Historical information

Photograph shows two women at the hand-operated railway gates at Grimshaw Street. This crossing is now underground. Most people in 2017 only remember the crossing at Grimshaw and Old Greensborough Road as having boom gates, so these swing gates are thought to date to the year 1930 and before... that is, if this photo is actually a photo of that location... which some doubt.

Significance

An early photograph of the Greensborough rail line.
